On Friday afternoon, July 30, 2021, Cst Rabut helped load up the Big Canoe owned by the Kitselas First Nations and paddled with a group of youths, over the age of 12, around Lakelse Lake.

In 2018, the RCMP, Kitselas, and Kitsumkalum had Ridge Wilderness Adventures teach the Big Canoe Skills Skipper and Paddler course in Terrace in preparation for a canoe journey down the Skeena River to Prince Rupert.

Gerald Nyce, youth coordinator for Kitselas First Nation, secured funding for the purchase of their band’s own canoe in 2019 which has been instrumental in building team work, bonding, and getting connected with nature.

Cst Rabut goes above and beyond on a regular basis, stated Cst Kelly Cates, Her genuine care for her community is seen on a regular basis. Cst Rabut will be out with the youth in the Big Canoe again the following week.
